About this Unit
This unit examines early nineteenth-century American modernism by studying a variety of social and political issues, including: politics and vision, nationalism, constructions of the American frontier and feminism. A number of approaches are incorporated: semiotics, poststructuralism, feminism and formalism. The unit also examines the major architectural technological and theoretical developments of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. Architectural topics include: the new American democracy and the quest for an 'Athenian America'; and American medieval-revival styles of the early nineteenth century.
